Progressive and socialist politics. News you can use. Culture. Miami. Las Vegas. The world. Hosted by Q and Jewish Dave; released like every week or so.

    Storyboys – “It’s all connected” OR the unified theory of Florida GOP corruption

    Storyboys – “It’s all connected” OR the unified theory of Florida GOP corruption

    This week we have another Storyboys episode and Q is going deep on the confluence of scandals encompassing former-Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg, Rep. Matt Gaetz, Frank Artiles, phony political candidates,  electoral fraud, misappropriation of public funds, bitcoin fires, underage sex trafficking, and more the GOP’s favorite things. We explore how Florida is a test lab for the Republican Party’s most perverse peccadilloes, and how it got that way.  

    We relied on the following reporting to tell this story:

    The Smooth Gen

    What has happened? What will happen in the future? What’s literally happening right now? Did Xzibit ever do a collab with Wu Tang? All questions are explored during this very introspective and special episode of Bird Road. Once again, it’s a Just Dem Boyz episode and we are going long. 

    don’t bother listening to this one unless you REALLY just like hearing Q & Jewish Dave break the law

    Storyboys: On Sinema – Kyrsten Sinema and the corrupting power of the U.S. Senate

    Storyboys: On Sinema – Kyrsten Sinema and the corrupting power of the U.S. Senate

    In our inaugural Storyboys episode, Q has a story to tell about the senior Senator from Arizona, the Queen Bee thumb-downer, the master of political disguise, Kyrsten Sinema, and about whether the US Senate is a corrupting influence, or if the institution’s allure of power and influence simply attracts the most easily corruptible handmaidens of power. 

    A little of both, TBH!

    JUST. DEM. BOYYYYYYYYZ Spectaculo 2021

Information, interesting, and diverse stories!

I love that this podcast will take apart one key story from the day’s news and talk to the journalists who worked on that story. You get to hear behind the scenes drama, recorded interviews with key players, and always accompanied with some historical context.

Sure, this podcast skews left but the information is valuable and educational. As long as you take it with a grain of salt you’ll enjoy it and grow your knowledge base.
